Bridal Hair and Makeup for Swara’s Indian Wedding at Aria by Villa Rosa in Prospect, CT

Swara and I got an early start that morning! We watched the sun rise as we talked about marriage, life, and about the beautiful day that was ahead of her.

Swara and Jack were married in a traditional Indian wedding ceremony. I was lucky enough to be present to see them get married.

While I enjoy being a hair and makeup artist for all types of brides and ceremonies, Indian weddings hold a special place in my heart. The energy, the colors, and the hospitality extended to me at this wedding are unparalleled and to see two families from different cultural backgrounds come together, as one, was particularly beautiful.

Swara’s “first look” (her hair and makeup for the ceremony) was done bright and early at the Courtyard Marriott in Waterbury, CT. After hair and makeup were complete, a few photos were taken, and Swara was dressed, we all made the drive to Aria by Villa Rosa which was only a short 15 minutes away.

After Swara’s beautiful traditional Indian ceremony was completed (which I was invited to attend!), I created her “second look” for her reception. I was honored to be included as a guest at Jack and Swara’s reception as well!

Congratulations and best wishes, Swara and Jack!
